Heart Shaped Cinnamon & Sugar Pie Crust Cookies
Hey! Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! I had to post one more Valentine’s Day Recipe today because I just made these. I wanted to make a recipe for someone who has to eat dairy-free & this was the first idea that came to me. It’s easy to make. You can use your favorite pie crust recipe or the one I have below that I used.
Flaky pie crust cookies. I love this oil based pie crust recipe, it’s a no fail pie crust recipe. Tried & true. This recipe goes back to my Grandma possibly my Great Grandma. Whenever a pie was made there would usually be some scraps of dough left & instead of throwing them away she would sprinkle them with cinnamon & sugar and bake them. My Grandma used to make them for my Mom when she was a kid & my Mom did the same with me as a kid.
After you mix the ingredients together it might seem a little dry but once you make it into a ball it will stick together (see photos above). I always roll out my pie crust dough in between 2 piece of waxed paper so it doesn’t stick to the rolling pin.
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- ⅓ cup vegetable oil
- 2-3 Tablespoon cold water
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- 3 Tablespoons sugar
- Preheat oven to 400 F. degrees.
- Mix all ingredients together in bowl. Start with 2 Tablespoons of water, if it needs it add 1 more Tablespoon. Dough will look a little dry (see photo above).
- Take the dough, form it into a ball with your hands.
- Take 2 pieces of waxed paper about 18" long, sprinkle the bottom piece lightly with flour and place the dough ball in between.
- Use a rolling pin to flatten the dough. I rolled mine to almost ⅛" thick. Whatever you prefer. You can roll it into a rectangle or whatever shape you want.
- Use cookie cutters to cut out heart shapes. When you have straps left, re-roll the dough & cut out more hearts.
- Place on greased cookie sheet.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar.
- Bake 12-14 min. or until the edges are just starting to turn golden.
- Let cool completely.
